Locate and trace buried plastic water pipes with the RD500. Low cost and easy to use, the RD500 traces plastic water pipes over distances up to 150m/yds from the point of application of the TransOnde transmitter. Operators can learn how to utilize this locator in only a few minutes. The RD500 is in two parts: the TransOnde transmitter which is fitted to a fire hydrant, meter base, or tap and the handheld RD500 receiver which traces buried pipe away from the TransOnde. The TransOnde applies a distinctive pressure wave signal along the pipe that is located by the seismic sensor in the receiver. The signal is then amplified to provide a response on the RD500 meter and in the headphones.

The RD500 receiver comes with a 62-inch earth probe, concrete/asphalt disc, headphones, carrying case, and videotape. The receiver is powered by a 9-volt battery and provides pinpointing information using an analog meter and headphones.
